The nivea milk and honey lip balm smells mostly like honey, and it does a good job of moisturizing the lips. I put in on before I sleep, and in my lips would be soft and moisturized when I wake up in the morning. The large cap is easy to take on and off, and unlike smaller caps, it won't easily roll off and get lost. I got mine for $2.20 at Target, and if I do purchase this again, I'll stick with the same brand. Nivea, but I'll get the Aloe Vera lip balm because the smell of honey can be too sweet for me.
This is my favorite lip balm ever. I've tried a lot of lip balms that provide little hydration and this hydrates my lips really well. It's a nice consistency and it isn't too thick on my lips. It lasts a while so I'm not constantly reapplying. I'm on my fourth tube of this.
I actually tried this in the La Bello version, which is the same as Nivea but the European version. I really like the packaging and smell of this, very cute. It isn't highly flavored though if that's what you are looking for. As much as I like how it looks, I don't find that this moisturizes my lips very well. I have REALLY chapped lips and thus far the only things that have actually healed my lips are the burt's bees mint balm, thick lip glosses and the new Nivea lip creams in the tin (which mind you have BHT which isn't a great ingredient). I find that anything with synthetic fragrances/flavors/saccharin in general are fun but not useful in the long run :/
I use this underneath drying lip products and it stop my lips from peeling.
I love honey so I had to try this. I've had other nivea lip products in the past and loved them so I knew I wouldn't be disappointed with this. I love it! The smell is slightly there and the yellow coloring of the balm is not too stiff or to soft. The cap clicks satisfyingly into place and is a common twist up balm. On my lips a few swipes is all I need and I'm left with a glossy hydrated pout. This ties with my eos balm for favorite chapstick but this one wins due to its smaller packaging versus the ball shape of eos. I want to try the tin ones out next
I love this! It feels so silky and moisturizing and I love the packaging. The smell is just ok, but I can live with that.
the smell has grown on me I really like it now I use it in the mornings when my lips are really dry
Wow! My favorite lip balm used to be Nivea's A Kiss of Mint and Minerals, but it seems that Milk and Honey grew on me and is now my favorite everyday lip balm. I have tried three other Nivea balms (Shimmer, Mint, and Cherry), and, out of all these, Milk and Honey has the creamiest and softest consistency. It is less rich than Shimmer, which is fairly waxy and not as creamy owing to high shimmer content, but more rich and creamy than Mint and Cherry, both of which are pretty "slippery". Ironically, texture is what I did not like about Milk and Honey the most, at first, but that has changed after I discovered how much longer Milk and Honey lasts on my lips. I wear it on weekends, as a night treatment, and, as others noted, it works very well as a base of lipstick. I also use it as a base for shimmery eye shadow, thanks to the terrific tip from pinkishbrown (below). What a moisturizing, versatile, and affordable ($3) balm. Everyone should have one of these. As many others, I love it and would come back for more.
This lip balm is seriously the best lip balm I've ever purchased! It's really affordable and keeps my lips hydrated all day long. With most lip balms, I have to reapply it to my lips almost every two hours but this stuff stays on ALL DAY! My lips are soft, moisturized, plump and best of all I never have any skin peeling off my lips! I hope Nivea doesn't discontinue this lip balm.
This product is something i use unconventionally, so brace yourself! I'm sorry to not be reviewing this as an actual lip balm, but I do have a few notes on that.
Price: very low, under $4 for certain and at most drugstores/Target/WM.
Packaging: adorable and convenient, sturdy
Shape/style: I love the shape and "thick" round end of the balm. I prefer this to skinny chapstick that seems unfriendly for women who have fuller lips (or want to feel that they do).
Scent/Misc: I don't detect a scent, but how I use this is why I probably do not detect one.
I use this as an eye "gloss"! It's the best. I basically roll it gently over my eye lid, and try to avoid getting close to lash line. (Don't want weird eyelash strays on my balm, it grosses me out!). This leaves a thin but detectable sheen on my lid. It's not as thick or sticky as Vaseline, and it's not mentholated.
After I roll the balm over my lid, I then take my favorite shadow (usually something with a bit of shimmer since I'm going for an illuminated effect), and I gently press a clean finger to pick up a wash of shadow, then press on my lid. Repeat until i've covered up to the crease and all over main part of lid.
This makes an amazing look IMO. It really brings out the beauty of the shadow because it's not applied thickly, but you can see every little pretty shimmer and color-nuance. Then, you get this amazing sheen that seems to make your eyelid thicker or more visible/lifted. That is the look I was going for. After years of searching for eye glosses and getting only icky and sticky items (Calvin Klein eye gloss, MAC gloss used on eyes which they rec'd), I gave up. Vaseline gave a similar effect but eyes felt disgusting and like I was about to lose any speck of shadow immediately.
Products like Laura Mercier's eye shimmers (in a little metal tube) exist, but these are precolored and never look like what I was hoping to achieve (that glossy lidded supermodel look that is totally impossible to replicate for long periods, until now!)....
A tip: when using finger to press the shadow onto the moistened lid, you have to use different fingers for each application, or else your shadow could get really mucky and "bumpy" since the balm is like a lubricant/oil. I keep a wet clean washcloth and just wipe off my fingers afterward. So cheap, so chic. LOVE!
